Back in August Paula Rebstock, a former commerce commission head and therefore the most appropriate person to make these sorts of life-and-death decisions, released her welfare working group’s issue paper which set us off like a firecracker in episode 50 (highlight here). Rebstock is back this week, with her group’s recommendations. Claiming our economy cannot support our society, she makes the dual mistake of forgetting that it’s our society that should come before our economy in that sentence, and that economies do tend to behave rather catastrophically when you base them on bullshit figures.

Sorry for the delay, everybody. Here’s our FORTIETH EPISODE! From Auckland’s “Party Central” (failed plans for a celebration zone on Auckland’s waterfront) to Wellington’s “Party Central” (Dan and Dave in a strip joint) to Christchurch’s “Party Central” (serious sexual assault allegations), this episode has the lot.
We use the N word in this episode, quoting You-Know-Who. Just a heads up.
The UK Election, 9/11, Cuban Missile Crisis and BOOBQUAKE! How’s that?
This was supposed to be a short and sweet episode. How did that turn out? Much like this:
Normally, we here at the Egonomist set aside Thursday nights for our tracking sessions. We have our day jobs to go to the next morning, so we tend to limit ourselves to having a moderate amount to drink and tend to record as early in the evening as is possible.
This week we recorded on a Friday. While we had friends over.
So join us for a musical adventure as we gripe and yarn over protest/political music, bloated prog and 1980s aural electro-abortions. Also a look at the fight going down between the writers of the soap opera Shortland Street and the city of Tauranga.
Episode three, Dave always tries to go large every St Paddy’s day and ends up with his card decliningThursday, April 1st, 2010
…and once had to break into Dan’s flat to sleep in his couch because he couldn’t get home. In this episode we talk music, sport, religion, The Feelers and haemochromatosis. The big issues.
